A BUMP ALONG THE WAY tells the story of fun-loving, 44-year-old single mum Pamela (Bronagh Gallagher) who becomes pregnant following a boozy one night-stand, much to the shame of her buttoned-up teenage daughter Allegra (Lola Petticrew). As Pamela deals with the prospect of becoming a mum for the second time and the growing pains of the disgruntled Allegra, the challenges they face along the way bring mother and daughter to a better understanding of themselves and each other.
Filmed entirely in Derry and led by an all-female creative team, A BUMP ALONG THE WAY is directed by Shelly Love, written by Tess McGowan, produced by Louise Gallagher and executive produced by Roma Downey. The film was funded by Northern Ireland Screen and Yellowmoon.
A BUMP ALONG THE WAY premiered in Belfast Film Festival and went on to win Best First Feature at the Galway Film Fleadh, with the film’s Lola Pettigrew also taking home the New Talent Award. The film will have its international premiere in TIFF’s Discovery Section.
